Kitty, I’m on a low sodium diet as well. I buy no salt added chickpeas at Whole Foods. But if you can’t find any, I assume the aquafaba (chickpea liquid) is being used as an egg replacer. Not sure which recipe you were looking at though, but if it’s for baking, you could try an alternative like a flax egg (1 tablespoon of ground flax seeds + 3 tablespoons of water) allow it to sit/gel or about 5-10 minutes. Hope that helps.

You say to use the liquid from a can of chickpeas but that is so high in sodium! What can I use instead? I am on a low sodium diet.

Hi Kitty, I had no idea that aquafaba from ‘no salt added’ canned chickpeas was high in sodium? How does one assess the sodium levels in the liquid?
